Philippines Lotto 6/42 Review

Philippines Lotto 6/42 Review

The Philippines Lotto 6/42 was first introduced in Luzon which is an island lying north of the Philippines on March 8, 1995. Because of the populous nature of Luzon Island and its large size, the lotto quickly gained popularity across the island, prompting the authorities to introduce it just a year later on June 15, 1996 in the Visayas-Mindanao area.

Originally, this lottery game had draws held every Tuesday with a minimum jackpot prize of 3 million pesos. In order to play, you had to buy a combination which goes for 10 Php. Currently, the National Lotto 6/42 is played three times a week and the cost per standard combination is 20 pesos.

How to Play Philippines Lotto 6/42

In addition to playing the standard combination, you can opt for different system plays as follows.

  • System 5R or 5 roll at a cost of 740 pesos
  • System 7 which has 7 combinations and goes at a cost of 140 pesos
  • System 8 with 28 combinations and goes for 560 pesos
  • System 9 which has 84 combinations at a cost of 1,680 pesos
  • System 10 with 210 combinations at a cost of 4,200 pesos
  • System 11 that comes with 462 combinations priced at 9,240 pesos
  • System 12 which is priced at 18,480 pesos and comes with 924 combinations

In order to participate, you must first buy tickets from an accredited retailer. You will first be given the playslip which you are to mark your 6 winning numbers. Thereafter, hand over the slip to the retailer or his clerk, who will then run it through the machine and generate a ticket. The ticket is the evidence that you have gained an entry into the draw and as such you must keep it safe.

It is advisable that immediately you are given the ticket, you confirm its accuracy by checking whether the numbers you marked on the playslip are the same as those on the ticket.

Once you confirm this, check the date for the draw and confirm it is the right date. Then sign the ticket at the back so as to make it truly yours. This is an important procedure in many lottery games because the ticket handed over to you is just by a bearer document and anyone coming across it can pick it and present it for a prize claim. By signing it, you are sure that nobody but you can present the ticket to the lottery authorities in the event it wins a prize.

You should also ensure that you keep your ticket well because extremely folded and defaced or torn tickets may take long to be validated and ultimately they may even deny you a prize that you have genuinely won. In case the ticket has issues, notify the clerk immediately and have the problem sorted out.

If you want to be entered for advance draws, Philippines Lotto 6/42 allows you to do so. You simply have to mark on the playslip the number of draws you want to be entered for with the maximum allowed being 6 consecutive draws.

The Odds of Winning Philippines Lotto 6/42

As earlier pointed out, the draws for this lottery game are conducted three times in a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9.00 p.m. local time. For transparency purposes, all drawings are televised live on PTV4. If you miss the live broadcast, you can also confirm from your retailer once the drawing is done whether you have won a prize or not.

It is important to remember for the purposes of legal procedures that only people who have attained the age of 18 and above are allowed to participate. During the drawing, 6 numbers are randomly picked by the system and they form the basis of the winning combination and the prizes to be awarded.

Being a pari-mutuel game, Philippines Lotto 6/42 divides the prize pool equally should there be more than one jackpot prize winner. If there is no jackpot winner for a particular round, the prize is rolled over to the next draw thus compounding the prize. The following is the prize payout for standard plays.

  • Matching all the 6 drawn numbers qualifies you for the jackpot prize which on the minimum is 6 million pesos.
  • The second prize of up to 25,000 pesos is gotten by matching 5 out of the 6 winning numbers.
  • Matching 4 numbers entitle you up to 1,000 pesos in prize money.
  • The last prize of 20 pesos goes to the player or players who match 3 numbers out of the 6 drawn.

Philippines Lotto 6/42 Prize Breakdown

If you are lucky enough to have won a prize, you must immediately start the process of claiming it. It is important to understand that if the prize is not claimed within a particular period of time that you can establish with your retailer, the prize reverts to the lottery company for reissuance to the next player according to their criteria.

If you haven’t already written your name and signed on the back of your winning ticket, it is important you do so before starting the claiming process. Tickets not signed won’t be accepted. Before you start the process, you have to double check with your retailer or call the lottery company help line so that you confirm that indeed you won a prize.

Prizes amounting to 5,000 pesos or below can be claimed right away at any authorized lotto outlet or from the PCSO branch offices within your area. Some retail outlets may not have a sufficient float and this means your claim may be turned down.

Prizes that are above 5,000 pesos, but no more than 200,000 pesos can be claimed at the main office of PCSO which is located in the second floor of Conservatory Building along 605 Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong City.
